Ultimate Guide to Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty: Risks, Side Effects & Results

When it comes to body aesthetics, most people concentrate on features like belly fat, the shape of their backsides, hair color, or how crooked their teeth appear to others. Focusing on something like the shape of your nose is common, but the options for fixing it seem limited. Obviously, this comes from the notion that a person is born with a nose that has a particular shape, and there is little to be done about it. It’s just an outcome of genetics. Right?

Unfortunately, there are countless people whose nose shapes are a source of horrible self-consciousness and embarrassment. The nose is quite often the first thing people notice on another’s face. It is a feature that can brilliantly pull all other facial features into concert. A nose shape that doesn’t match the rest of a person’s face however, can be strikingly obvious and distracting.

Still, other people have nose shapes that compromise their health and overall wellness. Certain deformities of the bone, cartilage, and nasal cavities can make necessary involuntary things like breathing, sneezing, and sleeping difficult. There are plenty of personal and medical reasons why the surgical alteration of the nose’s appearance is appropriate.

While, society tends to dismiss these reasons, they certainly carry weight to anyone struggling with issues centered on…well, the center of the face!

So girls, here’s all you need to know about ultrasonic rhinoplasty, it’s risks, side effects and results:

Common course of action for fixing nose shape

General cosmetic rhinoplasty has been available for decades. In the past, many people have undergone very involved reshaping procedures to improve the look and function of their noses. Do not misunderstand. There are many perfectly good reasons to have traditional rhinoplasty performed. It is very helpful when major reconstruction is needed, such as helping people who are involved in accidents. Certain diseases also cause deformities that change a person’s natural look. In these cases, skilled plastic surgeons can perform miracles for clients.

The main concerns for people when it comes to traditional rhinoplasty are scarring and healing time. Typically, this type of rhinoplasty is performed by accessing nose tissues through external incision. This means that there will likely be noticeable evidence of the procedure long after it is finished. People with aged, less elastic skin, often experience this. Also, traditional rhinoplasty alteration is achieved through grinding, rasping, and chiseling of bone. Even though the procedure attains its overall goal well, the reshaping is sometimes not as precise as planned. Healing time is also prolonged because manual scraping and chiseling do not always distinguish between hard and soft tissues.

The next generation of nose reshaping

Miracles of science contribute heavily to the ability of cosmetic plastic surgeons to perform miracles during surgery. The advent of sound as a surgical device is changing the way society thinks about facial aesthetics, and elective procedures like rhinoplasty.

Ultrasonic tools are now allowing surgeons in the most advanced clinics to offer something that would have seemed like magic only a short time ago. It is now possible to have your nose reshaped to better fit the features of your face by sidestepping external incisions. Ultrasonic rhinoplasty also prevents the major portion of tissue trauma that is normally associated with a “nose job.”

How does it work?

During ultrasonic rhinoplasty, a tool with a tiny vibrating crystalline end is guided into the nasal passages, or under layers of skin. The vibrations are powerful enough to literally shave layers of bone away. It is very similar to an artist shaving layers of soft clay from a sculpture, or a Sci Fi hero using a futuristic beam of energy to fix a spaceship component. The precision and versatility of ultrasonic rhinoplasty makes reshaping the nose for any reason an option for more people.

This type of procedure is perfect for people wanting to fix a dorsal nose “hump.” For some, a nose hump can look distinguished and exotic. For most, it is a problematic eyesore. This deformity can also cause the nose to be forced downward, and that can affect the function of many other muscles of the face. Ultrasonic rhinoplasty can easily remove unwanted bone nodes, but that is only the start.

The highly sensitive ultrasonic tool used also has an amazing safety feature. It can distinguish between hard materials like bone, and soft tissues that can easily experience trauma. When the crystal comes near soft tissue, an internal mechanism temporarily stops the vibration. This allows maximum accuracy in working toward the perfect bone shape. At the same time, contusions, lacerations, and bruising are minimized.

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is performed with a localized anesthetic. Most procedures only take between thirty minutes and two hours. Post-surgery swelling and discomfort usually subside in a few days, and the only marks left are hidden within natural skin folds. To make another comparison with artistic sculpting, a cosmetic plastic surgeon using ultrasonic devices has the ability to only “remove material that does not belong.”

What makes ultrasonic cosmetic surgeons seem like modern Michelangelo’s?

The advancements in tools of the cosmetic trade are not limited to surgical devices. Before ultrasonic procedures are performed, surgeons can help clients decide the best new nose shape using virtual imaging. With the help of advanced computer software, a person can see what their reshaped nose will look like. A surgeon can know ahead of time exactly the amount of alteration needed, and can advise a client on what shape fits their profile the best. This absolutely removes the worry and angst associated with any cosmetic surgery. A person can experience their new look before any work is done. For most clients, this process gives them relief through seeing how nature truly wanted them to look.
